The Clunker Junker and most of our partners are still operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, customer dropoffs have been suspended until further notice. Our staff is also working remotely, please excuse any background noise in phone calls! We are doing our best to keep things running as smoothly as possible. Thank you for your business, and stay safe!
Sometimes cars act like those in cartoons by sputtering, coughing out fumes, and doing a death scene worthy of Bogart. The only thing left to do is call for a rental and have the car towed home. Maybe It goes into the back yard until you can find the time to sell your junk car.
For those who live in HOAs, condos, or apartment complexes, the resident manager breathes fire, his yelling mouth taking up the whole screen, “that piece of junk has to GO!” The car’s owner is cowering behind, hopefully, a fire-proof wall, meekly nodding, while inside thinking, “I need to find someone who pays cash for cars in East Orange, NJ, and fast!”.
Fear not! TheClunker Junker’s going to swoop in like Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest to give you cash for your junk car in East Orange, NJ. You need an eyesore removed. You need money to put toward a new car. We get it. We can’t wait to see the smiling happy face as you hold out your hand for the cash and waive goodbye to that old clunker.
How does it work? You’ll fill out a few facts on our website. It will only take minutes. No waiting for prayer-filled days for someone on Craigslist or the local penny saver magazine to see an ad and respond. No waiting for days while your fingernails get chewed to nubs waiting for the buyer to finally show up.
When you fill out the details of your junk car on our website, we’ll pop out an instant offer after just a few seconds. The our valuation software is making up its mind how much cash we can pay for your junk car based on the information you provided us. When you accept the offer, we will show up, usually within 48 hours, for junk car removal. The resident manager will stop breathing fire, the butterflies and birds will fly about happily tweeting, and you’ll have money to put toward a new car. Everyone lives happily ever after.
First, we need to know about your car. Is the body in reasonable condition, or do the tires and body point toward each other? Does the engine start? Can the engine move the car? Being honest will avoid any contention at the time of pickup. We’ll need to know the year, make, and model of your car (such as “the car is a 2015 Nissan Altima.”) Next, you’ll tell us your zip code so we can make sure the offer comes from the closest East Orange, NJ junk car buyer near you.
We make you an instant offer. You accept. Now we need to know about you. Your name, address, and phone, of course, are required. We need information about the car’s title. Sometimes we ask for pictures of the car and documentation. After all this is done, we’ll notify the carrier we use for a pick-up. We’re at the mercy of his schedule, so while they work quickly we can never guarantee a specific time or day for pickup.
When our East Orange, NJ junk car removal specialist arrives, they’ll check over the car to see if the application matches the car. You’ll hand over your keys and the car, hold out your hand for a check, and the carrier will exit stage left.
The Clunker Junker is here to help you. We buy junk cars in East Orange, NJ in most conditions (we’ve even bought wrecked and mangled autos.). We know you’re pressed for time as well as money. When we give you cash for cars, we’re taking off your shoulders the worry and the anxiety from time spent avoiding fire-breathing wives or property managers.
Let’s admit it: we’re Americans. We want what we want and we want it yesterday. The word instant means something to us. It means more when we have a no-joke property manager or homeowner’s association rep frowning in distaste as s/he gives us a pink slip. Get rid of it or I will.
If you put an ad in Craigslist or in the local penny saver magazine, you have to wait for someone to answer. Then you bicker over price. Next, you wait to see if they even show up when they said they will. Only then can you in good conscience give the buyer your keys and the title to the car. Not to mention, there are some pretty sketchy characters on Craigslist and you never know if they may want to scam you or even cause you harm. The Clunker Junker fully background checks all of our East Orange junk car buyers so you can rest assured our service is compeltely safe.
Selling your junk car on the private market might take weeks or months. It might never happen at all. If it doesn’t happen, the city tows your car, leaving you with no car and no money. You might even get a bill for the towing and be responsible for impound fees. Yikes!
When The Clunker Junker buys junk cars in East Orange, NJ towing is free. We realize if your car isn’t running, you possibly aren’t working. No paycheck. No money for a tow truck. We get it. We have a carrier and don’t need to trouble you to pay for towing. We just give you cash for your junk car and then get out of your hair. And smile as we watch your happy dance in the rear view mirror.

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in East Orange within 1 to 3 business days.

Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by check or cash depends on the policy of the buyer near you who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. If you are paid via business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!
"The car was sitting for a while. I put a new fuel pump in it. I cranked it about nine months ago and drove it down the street. The passenger window is broken and the interior needs to be cleaned. "
"It has a 4.6 motor swap with 86k miles on it and lots of new parts. The only thing wrong with it is that it has a blown transmission. Other than that, it's really nice. Thank you. "
"The car has approximately 200,300 miles on it. I have the blue title in hand. The car will cut on and it tries to turn over but will not do so, as if it is out of gas. The seats are in great condition and all of the speakers work. I took the radio out because I believed it was draining my battery. The battery is under six months old. The car was a great driver. There's a spare tire in trunk, I believe. "
"The vehicle has hail damage and some scratches from rubs. The windshield is cracked. The rear passenger brake caliper is not hooking up to the hydraulic line but I have a new one for it. The oil pan leaks but I have a new one for that, too. "
"We are going to junk this van because the transmission is going out. At just over 150,000 miles, it has been a great, kept in the family vehicle. The entertainment center (DVD) player still works and the headphones are still in the car as well. "
"It runs but the transmission is on its way out. It has four new tires on it, I replaced them a little over a month ago, and a full tank of gas. The interior has two panels that have fallen off but I still have the panels and they are in good shape, they just fell off. A/C works and everything is in good condition except for the transmission being on its way out. "
